With the price of gas over $3 per gallon, scooters are becoming a common sight around Atlanta, Athens, and other towns in the Atlanta area. This also means that scooter accidents are becoming more common.
University of Georgia Linebacker Ray Drew, a freshman from Thomasville, was injured recently in a scooter accident in Athens. He was the second UGA player to be injured in the past several months due to a scooter accident. The other, Derrick Lott, a defensive end for the Bulldogs, sustained a gash on his right leg and spent a month on the sidelines.
Protective clothing such as heavy pants, a helmet, and gloves can help. However, with little protection between a rider and the pavement, scooter accidents can be serious. If you’ve been injured in a scooter accident, it may be the fault of an automobile driver who wasn’t paying attention. Give Krause Golomb & Witcher a call.
